We eat a lot of pizza. Usually that means we take a blank canvas of soft dough and apply our favorite colors -basil, tomato, cheese, meats, veggies- then cut it into triangl-y pieces and eat the pointy ends first. But what if, this time, we changed neither the canvas nor the paints but the whole approach to eating pizza? How about dipping bread sticks in a cheesy, saucy pizza? Well, that's pretty good, except that bread sticks are boring. Then Claramecium (my oldest daughter's Instructables screen name), thought up the Octopizza, complete with pepperoni suckers. I love having kids!
Step 1: Ingredients
You can use whatever ingredients you like, canned sauce, fancy cheese... I think only two things are imperative to this recipe: pepperoni sticks and fresh dough.
I also used
one can tomato sauce (not diced, for ease of dipping)
some oregano, basil, fennel, garlic, onion, pepper, salt and oil to coax out the flav's
4 cups flour mixed with 1 Tbs salt and a shot of olive oil
2 cups warm-ish water with a Tbs of dissolved, happy yeast, all bright-eyed and foamy.
